You can't change it! And tell me, how does that make some conservatives you know feel, Texan? And what about ending racism in the country would you like us to fake now—colorblindness?  Race-neutrality? Tell me why if you can. Because looking at Texas in the news, I see a great big 'way-back' machine gearing itself up! Won't be long before 1776 is new again there!

In 2010, the Black population in Texas was 2.886M, in 2020 it was 3.444M, an increase of over half a million or 11.82%.

You must be a lot smarter than those Black people or do you think that they are just Uncle Toms and Aunt Jemimas?

And that gives Texas 'approval' to go conservative-'crazy'? How? Populations, as your numbers illustrate move around what part of that don't you understand? Furthermore, don't try to take credit for population 'shifts,' because one has to wonder since there is 'talk' of Texas secession (Karen songs) again if they can't wholly run themselves while in the union—how many blacks and whites, for that matter, will leave the United States for Texas alone?  We might find out-or not!

You're colorblind in Texas, right? Race-neutral, eh? Well, what about this headline:

Statement by President Joe   Biden on Texas Senate Bill   7

May 29, 2021 Statements and Releases
Today, Texas legislators put forth a bill that joins Georgia and Florida in advancing a state law that attacks the sacred right to vote. It’s part of an assault on democracy that we’ve seen far too often this year—and often disproportionately targeting Black and Brown Americans.

It’s wrong and un-American. In the 21 st  century, we should be making it easier, not harder, for every eligible voter to vote.

I call again on Congress to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. And I continue to call on all Americans, of every party and persuasion, to stand up for our democracy and protect the right to vote and the integrity of our elections.

Race-neutral, colorblind, Texas is trying to disenfranchise its voters, WHY IS TEXAS ATTEMPTING TO 'EAT' ITS OWN?

@4.1.8 and now girls have to 'make' every baby because Texas 'says so.'  Why does Texas regress its young girls and women to repositories for 'seeded' things they do not want, or stuck looking at for life(!), and has great potential to destablize the mental and physical health of female Texans? This can not have a happy ending, for Texas that is. Ultimately, Texas may become a rest 'home' for retirees and 'old blue bloods.'

Resolutions   1580

1. 2020 Election : We believe that the 2020 election violated Article 1 and 2 of the US Constitution, that 1581
various secretaries of state illegally circumvented their state legislatures in conducting their elections in 1582
multiple ways, including by allowing ballots to be received after November 3, 2020.We believe that 1583
substantial election fraud in key metropolitan areas significantly affected the results in five key states in 1584
favor of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr . 1585


We reject the certified results of the 2020 Presidential election , and we hold that acting President Joseph 1586
Robinette Biden Jr. was not legitimately elected by the people of the United States. We strongly urge all 1587
Republicans to work to ensure election i ntegrity and to show up to vote in November of 2022, bring your 1588
friends and family, volunteer for your local Republicans, and overwhelm any possible fraud.

Oh no! The GOP-Texas (styled) has declared our current president as "acting" legit. That's a form of disenfranchisement. What does it bode for Texas and 'us'?

Whereas “red flag laws” violate one’s right to due process and are a pre-crime punishment of people not 1594

Whereas waiting periods on gun purchases harm those who need to acquire the means of self defense in 1596

Disenfranchisement is a removal of privileges and/or rights. I never told you that I was just dealing with the voting laws or laws alone, you tried steering me into your 'lane' and I have not been (nor do I plan) driving in it. You're not the boss of me-I thought you knew already. Moreover, the Texas GOP is 'Trump/Abbott' or vice-versa country. Don't even waste my or anybody's time trying to deny that whatever is in the platform has not passed or will be slated for passage and signature in the 'great' state of Texas!

So let me get my little cards out. . . oh, okay- here's another. And it does (good for your 'concern') have to do with voting. That is, making conservatives feel they are in a safe space when they vote the 'conservative way' :

2. Voter Registration: We support restoring integrity to the voter registration rolls and reducing voter  1381

a. repealing all motor voter laws.

c. requiring photo ID of all registrants.
1385
d. requiring proof of residency and citizenship along with the voter registration application. 
1386
e. retaining the 30 - day registration deadline.

f. r equiring that a list of certified deaths be provided to the Secretary of State in order for the 
1388

Speaking of listening......I have stated my views on abortion many times here.

I think a woman should be able to have as many abortions as she wants and can afford.

I ALSO think abortion is a piss poor solution in this day and age and the myriad ways to prevent pregnancies.

I also think parents of minors should be notified. Or, failing that, lower the age of consent to whatever age you deem appropriate for a minor to get something as serious as an abortion with all its ramifications without notifying the parents.

Now, do you understand that you simply have no idea what I support and stop telling me so?

I am still waiting for you to read an actual Texas law that supports your ridiculous claim that the law disenfranchises voters.

What is sad is a state that promises liberty, freedom, and success while it compels girls and women, and by extrapolation their boys and husbands to move away from a state that now insist they live up to a conservative standard and nothing else. And homosexuals won't be happily married in Texas (oh, the foreshadowing) so they better get their behinds in drive to move away (why the "h" wait to be told to piss off), because conservatives don't value them as people.

Texan you talk a lot of bull crap and it's evidenced by your look over here and not over there where "patty" is continuing or setting up to begin.

Hispanic Texans may hold the key to their future.  There is growing evidence  that Texas Hispanics are less satisfied with liberals. The 2016 and 2020 election results in South Texas showed a significant rightward shift in historically deep blue counties along the border. And the 2022 primary elections featured a record number of Hispanic Republican candidates, as well as record Hispanic Republican turnout.

A recent survey found 87% of Hispanics were proud to be Texans..

Texas Hispanics to care more about the issues of border security, immigration reform, education, jobs and the economy, and health care. On state issues, 87% of Texas Hispanics said that property tax was a major burden to them and their families. This was the majority sentiment across the board with 80% conservatives, 71% moderates and even 61% liberals.

78% of Texan Hispanics support school choice.  Fully 89% of Hispanics surveyed agreed that parents should have access to materials taught to their children in schools.

73% of Hispanics surveyed agreed that there is a crisis at the border. 

Texas Hispanics are moving away from the boilerplate positions of today’s Left.

Presupposes Texas GOPers want homosexuals to marry opposite sexes or go back to being stigmatized as "down-lowers" or sex with strangers because of a lack of legitimacy in intimacy.

Shall I be as obtuse as you? What rights and privileges were endured in U.S. history and by whom? When something has been endured, it was suffered, accepted with great patience, and was vexxing. For example, in the video, interracial marriages (though of as "holy" unions before God) were overruled and endured nullification in Virginia.

How is that even possible if conservatives SAY their view of marriage is it a sacred space? Please explain that past denial of proper rights and privileges.

Well, interracial marriage came back to this country through a SCOTUS decision. But, it is not in the constitutionally ratified document. . . . So what does that mean to conservatives who view the constitution as sacred: There is no constitutional right to interracial marriage.

It's just a lighthearted example, though. Cheers.
